Outdoor Learning at St Pius X
At St Pius X, we look for opportuities to take the currciulum outdoors as this can have considerably beneficial impact on children's learning and development. From enhancing problem solving skills to communication and resilience, outdoor learning provides endless opportuities for exploration, experimentation and contextual learning. We have some wonderful outdoor spaces at St Pius X; in addition to our field and playgrounds, we have our wonderful Wildlife Area with log circle, pond, wooded areas, raised beds, bug hotels and plenty of space to explore and learn.
On Wednesdays, teachers look for opportunities within the curriculum to take learning outside. Children are asked to bring in their wellies and warm coats and we all benefit from the extra fresh air and physical activity that outdoor learning offers us.
